Texture by Devious Machines – a sound effect and sound design layering plug-in. It is, in a nutshell, a software Multi-Effect plugin that produces a unique sound that matches the dynamics of your source. The source can be your own sample or one of the included ones. Devious Machines did send a review copy with no strings attached.

Percussive Layers includes 650 sounds covering: bass attacks, bass kickers, bass tails, bells, clap layers, hi-hats, fizzes, effects, glitches, hand percussion, percussion, mid-attacks, mid-thumps and mid-hits, reverb tails, shakers, slaps, snares, snare rattles, top-attacks, and transients.

What Is “Texture” & What Does It Do?

Texture is an effect plugin for your DAW (Digital Audio Workstation). It listens to the volume of the audio you feed into it, then generates a new sound which matches the dynamics of your source.

You can use Texture to blend new layers into your sound, or even replace it entirely with a new sound, which matches the shape and rhythm of your source.

Texture has a variety of applications, ranging from subtle enhancement of sounds “in the mix” through to radical transformation and sound design. We expect that you’ll find all sorts of uses for it, many of which we haven’t thought of!
